Transfer hydrogenation of unfunctionalised alkenes using N-heterocyclic carbeneruthenium catalyst precursors

Author affiliations

Abstract

Transfer hydrogenation of unfunctionalised and aliphatic alkenes in iPrOH/KOH is efficiently catalysed by an olefin-tethered N-heterocyclic carbene ruthenium complex, which also catalyses double bond migration as a competitive and considerably faster process.
